|How many times has Joe suggested physical confrontation to someone an ID or evolution board?|
I don't know, but I may have been among the first. I guess it must have been about 8-9 years ago on the old OCW forum. He was his usual self, and a few of us had put him in his place on the issues and we all know that little Joey don't like that.
He posted my full name and my home address in a post, and later wrote that he might be passing through, and that "not everyone goes to Vermont to ski".
It came up again on NAIG shortly thereafter, and I'd had enough. We only live a few hours apart, and spring break was coming up, so I told him to give me a time and a place, and I'd be there. He was suddenly too busy to post for about a week, and on the last day of my spring break, when the thread was about to scroll off the board, he makes a post boasting an 'anytime' sort of thing, then later claimed that I had chickened out.
He later 'challeneged' Chris Seibold and Robert R., and who knows who else, and I know dates and places had been discussed for at least a couple of people - Chris showed up at the agreed to time and place, Joey didn't, but he later claimed to have been there waiting (but could not accuratley describe anything at the venu) - or was that Blipey? Or has that happened on more than one occasion?
I stopped interacting with him shortly thereafter, but I can only imagine how many times he's done this.
He's a classic internet bully/punk - talks tough when he knows there is little chance of actual confrontation, shows himself to be a big talking pussy when his bluff is called.
As an aside - he did also write of having had back surgery and to have re-injured himself in Iraq (I guess digging latrines is hard work). Just mentioning a choice target and an obvious handicap, just in case... :p
